It seems that the relationship between Barcelona defender Gerard Pique and Colombian singer Shakira is about to end after 12 years, amid doubts that Barcelona star is cheating on her, as revealed by Spanish newspapers and websites.
Pique and Shakira, along with former England star David Beckham and pop singer Victoria Adams, are the most famous sports-art duo, so their personal lives receive a lot of media attention.
According to the Spanish website El Periodico, Shakira knew that Pique had betrayed her again, so they have not appeared together since last March, either in public or even on social media.
According to El Periodico, Pique was seen with a young blonde girl several times.
The girl is believed to be in her 20s.
She is a student and an event hostess in Barcelona.
Her identity has not been made public yet.
Rumours say the ‘woman turned out to be the mother of young Barcelona star Pablo Gavi. Gavi is unaware of the incident.”
The site termed it as "Emotional Crisis," and revealed that "Shakira knew of Pique's relationship with another woman, and they will separate soon."
Pique now lives alone in an apartment in Barcelona.
Pique and Shakira's relationship began during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, after the Colombian singer, of Lebanese origin, performed the official song of the tournament. They have two children, Milan and Sasha.
Although they were not together permanently except at sporting and family events, their relationship did not witness this deterioration, as happened in the last two months.
Shakira spent a family vacation on the island of Ibiza with her two children but without Pique.
